We're improving the information parents receive through a new type of report card. Instead of just As, Bs and Cs, your new report card will show how your student is performing in specific areas. We hope being more transparent helps parents with having conversations at home and also with teachers. We also hope it will help students better understand how they are progressing.
Below are example report cards to assist you in learning more about this change. Middle schools will adapt to these new report cards in the 2019-2020 school year, and high schools will adapt to these new report cards in the 2020-2021 school year.
High School Grade Letter Calculation
Grades will not be calculated differently by each teacher through accumulating percentage points for homework, tests, and classwork. Instead, grades will be calculated by all teachers using the following common formula:
A: Met or exceeded all standards. Student earns 4s & 3s on all standards.
B: Met most priority standards. Student earns half or more 4s & 3s on all standards and no 1s on any standards.
C: Met some priority standards and made progress on all standards. Student earns less than half 4s & 3s on all standards and no 1s on any standards.
D: Made progress on all standards. Student earns 2s on all standards.
I or F: Student earns 1 on any standards. I = In Progress, insufficient evidence of learning or of reaching basic standards. With additional time, student may successfully complete the course. F = Not enough evidence of learning. Student needs to repeat the course.
